Crown Of Thorns Lyrics. You were yesterday's hero An ordinary man of flesh and blood Took the world on your shoulders A hopeless crusade, and act of love. But it's a world obsessed with religion And now you wear the face of a god Like the words you said, you're as good as dead Just a work of art on the wall. And that's why nobody wears a crown of thorns Nobody cares Nobody wears a crown of thorns anymore.

Clark Datchler's father was Fred Datchler, a singer and saxophonist in two popular vocal groups of the 1950s, The Polkadots and The Stargazers. He also sang backing vocals for The Beatles and Frank Sinatra. Fred encouraged his son to learn to play piano, guitar and flute from the age of 7 years old. Datchler attended Downsend School, Ashtead and St. John’s School, Leatherhead where he started many bands. According to three of the canonical Gospels a woven crown of thorns was placed on the head of Jesus during the events leading up to the Crucifixion of Jesus. It was one of the instruments of the Passion, employed by Jesus' captors both to cause him pain and to mock his claim of authority. It is mentioned in the gospels of Matthew (27:29), Mark (15:17), and John (19:2, 5) and is often alluded to by the early Church Fathers, such as Clement of Alexandria, Origen, and others.
